Food from Friends and the Roof

Bruce's Rhode Island Reds produce my favorite protein resource, with rich, deeply colored yolks. We're lucky to have the hens just down the block. First egg I cracked from the latest dozen was a double yolker.
 Debbie sent along some lovely pungent garlic from her garden.

Along with the non-stop Jimmy Nardello peppers from the roof...anyone else spot a killer omelet on the horizon?

"Most often double yolk eggs are laid by young hens of productive egg laying breeds"

If you're feeling like a little double-yolk entertainment, check out this vid featuring English cake-maker Charlotte Matthews, who cracked 29 double-yolked eggs from a box of 30. Sorry for the spoiler...

Does a double yolker have twice as much cholesterol? Just wondering.

Yes, for certain, but also more flavor.

I always thought double egg yokes were good luck!

The eggs color has the same color as of our chicken's eggs in the farm.
